From my experience, I had the best teachers that you could always depend on to help you. At the beginning of the year, I would doubt a specific subject that I felt I wouldn’t master, but the teachers I had made me stop doubting myself and made me like subject like chemistry and calculus. Sports are amazing and our student section is great. It is also a very diverse school and that’s what I like most about it. The teachers always try their best to help their students succeed and pass the class.

My experience was pretty average when looking at the school as a whole. There were individuals like the teachers, staff, or students that gave hope to those who felt left out. I wish that the school would come together and shine the light on students and make them feel like someone cares about them. Not curse them by getting a bad grade or just being different. They need to stop putting all of their focus on the "popular sports" and focus on Lincolnton High School.
Lincolnton High School produces many legacy students as the town of Lincolnton has a lot of alumni remain in the county after graduation. The location near Major metropolitan areas allows for easy commutes with the dangers of large city schools. The athletic programs have produced state championships in football and baseball in the past 25 years. The school sports the best tradition in Lincoln County and the students who are academically capable usually have an opportunity to play college sports. Good student to teacher ratios make sure students have long lasting relationships. I graduated over 20 years ago and still have a relationship with several of my teachers.
